Made for assembly line, machine automation, and other applications, this RoHS-compliant wide gap optical sensor includes an emitter-sensor pair. Its LED and phototransistor are made to work over up to 12 inches in industrial environments. The sensor components are mounted in threaded color-coded housings. The emitter-sensor pair uses an LED with a 935 mm peak wavelength and a silicon phototransistor. The pair will mate with a Molex 03-06-2023 connector with either male (for the LED) or female (for the sensor) pins. The output phototransistor performs at collector-emitter voltages of 30V, emitter-collector voltage of 5V, and power dissipation of 100 mW. The LED has a maximum continuous forward dc current of 40 mA, a reverse voltage of 2V, and power dissipation of 100 mW.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
